Arrest Made in Brooklyn Killing of Great Neck Man

Staten Island man admits Wednesday to killing spree that took lives of three shopkeepers since July 6, according to police.

Salvatore Perrone, a garment district salesman from Staten Island, confessed Wednesday to a killing spree that included the alleged murder of a Great Neck man, according to a Huffington Post report.

Perrone, 64, was arrested after cops found the weapon he allegedly used in the killings — a .22 caliber sawed-off rifle with a laser light taped to it — and a duffel bag in his girlfriend's Brooklyn home, according to the Huffington Post.

Vahidipour Rahmatollah of Great Neck, one of the three victims allegedly killed by Perrone, died Nov. 16 after being shot twice to the head and once to the torso at the She She Boutique at 834 Flatbush Ave. in Brooklyn.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the weapon was the same gun used in the three homicides and that he believed Perrone was not done killing.

Shop owner Mohamed Gebeli was killed inside Valentino Fashion in Bay Ridge on July 6, and Isaac Kadare was gunned down at his Amazing 99 Cents Deal shop in Bensonhurst on Aug. 2. 

At a press conference last weel, Kelly said it was "reasonable to assume that Perrone was going to continue doing this."
